OverviewFounded by John Freeman and Anne Westfall, the name being a portmanteau of their last names. Both of them left Epyx in 1981 to spend more time together and to get away from the office politics at a now larger company.
Free Fall was only a game developer, they did not want any part of publishing, marketing and distributing of games. They were the first company to sign a contract with Electronic Arts, and was a big part of their early success as a publisher.
They are most famous for the Archon titles.
|Swords of Twilight||(1989)|
|Archon II: Adept||(1984)|
|Archon: The Light and the Dark||(1983)|
|Murder on the Zinderneuf||(1983)|
TriviaThe company name is of course taken from the last names of its founders: Freeman and Anne Westfall... a much better name for their company than "Westman" would have been!
